Hikari-no-Mi 2019 (Fruits of Light)


The annual event "Hikari-no-Mi" Illumination has been held in Dogo Park since the finale of “Dogo Onsenart 2014”. “Hikari-no-Mi” is the event in which local children and other participants draw a smiling face on fruit cultivation bags, and put LED lights in them. By hanging them on the trees in the park or the streets, the unique and colorful lights wrap the surrounding area and make it look fantastic. Please enjoy strolling around Dogo surrounded by the lovely pictures.
